PLAYING FOR CHANGE

Song Around The World

I started following Playing for Change a few years ago.

I think the work they do and the way they present music from around the world is amazing.

Music is the universal language.

Here’s a new song that I found traversing through the internet today.

I hope you enjoy it!

Song Around The World

“Before, our music had the reputation of rebellion, but now itโ€™s the opposite.”

Bombino

The title of this song translates to โ€œI greet my countryโ€ and it was written by the great guitar player, Bombino, about his home in Niger after he spent years in exile.

Extremists and the leaders of the country tried to ban the guitar as a symbol of the rebellion.

Bombino once said,

โ€œI do not see my guitar as a gun but rather as a hammer with which to help build the house of the Tuareg people.โ€

The unity of musicians around the world playing on this song is a statement that music is part of the foundation from which we rebuild our humanity and our world together.
